        rothem, the Spanish broom, Genista monosperma, white blossoming (<111904> 1 Kings 19:4-6; <183004> Job 30:4, <19C004> Psalm 120:4). Abundant in the desert of Sinai. The bushy shrub, eight or ten feet high, shaded Elijah from the heat. The Bedouins still make charcoal of the wood, as the psalmist describes. The eating of its bitter roots for food is Job's illustration of the degradation and famine to which the outcasts he describes were reduced.
